Probably a bustling place during prime season. We visited relatives in Westbrook well past -- second half of October. The restaurant had quite a few guests though not full. Most likely year-round locals. That's always a good sign. We were not disappointed. Most difficult issue was choosing from amongst the variety of burger offerings, including build-your-own. I don;t think you... More

Not going to lie, Westbrook does not have many good food options, but, THIS IS ONE OF THE BEST. Delicious burgers, chicken, fries, everything. Comprehensive wine and beer list and great service. Highly suggest!!! Not just for a casual meal either, it is a nice spot that would work for any kind of meal. Family, date, friends, etc. You can... More

We met friends here for an early dinner, and I was anxious to try this restaurant as I had heard such good recommendations from friends. We were early so it wasn't busy on a Tuesday night. The selection of burgers was quite extensive and expensive for a burger place. I was able to substitute sauté onions on the burger I... More

My husband and I stopped at Haywire to see what all of the fuss was about - the place is always packed! We were seated quickly. The music was very loud, so people were speaking loudly to be heard. My husband and I shared the shrimp appetizer - there was plenty of fried popcorn shrimp for us both! He had... More

Friends recommended this burger restaurant, so our family of 4 (2 adults & 2 teens) went for dinner. The atmosphere was much nicer than I was anticipating. We went on a Thursday night in the summer-time and we were seated as soon as we walked in. We had excellent service by our waitress, who came over immediately to introduce herself... More

I have been here 3 times, although the food is good the waitstaff is terrible. We were seated promptly, then the waitress came over took the order, brought the food and thats the end. We had to go find her to get the check, she never asked if everything was OK ( I wanted a soda) The owner needs to... More

Stopped in on out way to the outlets. Good beer selection, and the burger is decent but not the best. A creative menu is good, but the portions are a bit lacking. Loud out front in the bar, more quiet in back. I'd give it a 7. Will come back, but not in a rush.

Very very good burgers that are very filling. I could barely finish my burger which included BBQ sauce, onion straws, and bacon. Kinda expensive but worth it. I will be back again and again

Well no worries at Haywire, I've been going there since their opening and ive yet to be disappointed. The owner takes pride in what they do, it's easy to... More
